King holds court
BARBADOS HELD SERVE YESTERDAY, right after the King held court.
Darian King couldn’t have come any better, heroically levelling the country’s first ever Group I tie after utterly dominating the Dominican Republic’s Jose Hernandez in straight sets to cap a dramatic opening day of Davis Cup tennis action at the National Tennis Centre.
Staring down the barrel of a possible 2-0 hole, King produced his finest hour yet, using very favourable gusty conditions to literally blow his opponent off the court in a near flawless 6-1, 6-3, 6-0 victory.
This was after the visitors already went one up in the best-of-five showdown, with world No. 56 Victor Estrella recording a similarly dominant 6-1, 6-1, 6-1 thrashing of surprise singles nominee Seanon Williams.
